Type: Visiting Jockey

Background:
Age: 34. Irishman Billy Lee rode his first winner aboard Zeno over at Sligo in 2002, quickly establishing himself as a rising star under the tutelage of trainer Tommy Stack, with whom he completed his apprenticeship. While Flat racing has been Lee's unwavering focus throughout his career, he has tasted success over jumps with victory in the Listed Gordon Plant Memorial Newton Novices' Hurdle aboard Wanango at Haydock Park, but his biggest win to date came with a first G1 triumph aboard Fiesolana for Willie McCreery in the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown in 2014. Lee's Royal Ascot victories include those on Settle For Bay in the Royal Hunt Handicap in 2018, five years after partnering Joanna Morgan's Roca Tumu to Britannia Stakes success. Lee has partnered a string of top gallopers, notably Romanised who he partnered to G1 success in France's Prix Jacques Le Marois, Agnes Stewart, Gordon Lord Byron, Space Traveller, Downforce and Devonshire. He has also ridden abroad successfully with stints in Dubai, Australia and Qatar.
